I know. If you have to take it home to study, make it fun for your self. Your the only one that can make braille bad.


Re:braille and surgery



yeah Elizabeth that's true


Re:braille and surgery



I think that is.


Re:braille and surgery



I am just starting to learn braille too, but it gets easier the more you know. My teacher just got me flashcards (220 way too many) and they really help because they are organized by what I need to know. I have had two strabismus surgeries already and the best way to look at it is to know that usually the surgery helps to improve my vision instead of making it worse.
